Jardins de I'Imaginaire

The gardens are a bit out of our way but will make the detour if it is worth it. We are avid botanical garden visitors and wanted to know if anybody has been there and if I should include it on our Dordogne itinerary. Thank you in advance.

I have not been there but you may try searching youtube and dailymotion to get a better idea of what the place is like.

Do you ever watch Cote de Jardins online on France TV3? I found their tour of the garden posted on youtube:

Cote de Jardin is a great gardening show from France, even better if you can understand French!

There is usually a new episode each week during the growing seasons, and there is a large number of online archives:

Good Luck !

If you love gardens it's definitely worth a visit, simply because it's so different to the traditional chateau-style plantings in this area. It really uses water & sculpture as a feature too. Another lovely garden is Cadiot, if it's near you. Once again not as formal as Eyrignac but a series of 'garden rooms' you wander through. Very pretty. And thanks VWrabbit for those links - I'll have a look now myself!

I haven't watched this one lately. I tried pulling up the latest show & it was very slow. Sometimes it is viewed better once it is on the archives, sometimes you have to just keep trying until there is a day it plays well.

TV3 has other shows available but this is the only one I have watched.
